Now Is a Good Time For Some Guinness (or some Johnnie Walker)


Though I am not much of a drinker, I suddenly feel like having a Guinness or maybe some Johnnie Walker. Why, you ask? Because the company that owns both, Diageo, has decided to pull its advertising from the Glenn Beck program. This makes the 80th company that has pulled its ads from Beck. As popular as he is, I don't see how Fox will continue to keep him on if he can't make any money for the company. I may hate Rupert Murdoch, but I don't think he's a stupid man.

It's nice to see Fox News caught between a rock and a hard place. If they dump Beck they'll look like traitors to the wingnut crowd but they have to make money off the show.

I think they'll keep Beck no matter how much money they lose. He fits their philosophy to a "T". He's arrogant and ignorant in equal proportion - and he never retracts any of the provably false bullshit he spews out.

Not like I need an excuse for having a Guiness, but this just makes it all the sweeter!
